That'd be one good way to do it.  The other way is via Clearview's UV
"shim" layer, which will eventually make legacy DLPI devices appear to
be GLDv3 drivers.

I'd rather see these old drivers ported over to the new framework, but
that's a cost/benefit analysis that others (partly the maintainers of
the driver) need to make.  (And, unfortunately, many of these old
drivers are closed-source, so it's harder to find people to help out.)
